St. John's College in Annapolis, Maryland was chartered in 1784 upon a most liberal plan for the benefit of youth of every religious denomination. In 1937 the New Program, under which the college still operates, was instituted. Under it, we help our students learn to ask fundamental questions and practice thoughtfulness in public. We introduce them to the textual tradition of reason that illuminates such central features of modern life as democracy and technology, as well as to the literary and musical tradition of the West. We are committed to the use of a list of great books that is both fairly stable and under continual review. These are books agreed to be excellent, to form a coherent sequence, and to raise most cogently questions we want our students to consider. We foster literacy in three kinds of texts: verbal, mathematical, and musical. We want our students to develop the intellectual virtues of courage in inquiry, caution in forming opinions, candor about their ignorance, open attentiveness to the words of their colleagues, industry in preparation, and meticulousness in verbal translations as well as in mathematical demonstrations. We give our students the experience of living in a community of learning imbued with attitudes of consideration and respect that foster moral virtues appropriate to their future lives as citizens. We think that the college has a wider mission in contributing to the invigoration of American education by giving help to other institutions that ask for it, by encouraging our students to become teachers, and by providing to a wide constituency occasions for actual learning in the spirit and through the materials of our program.

At St. John's the program is fixed but the tutors add a specific flavor to each class. In your freshman year you take a course learning about languages which accompanies the learning of Ancient Greek. You also study Euclid's elements and Ptolemy's conception of the heavens. There isn't an emphasis on the history though you'll get plenty of it to accompany the works you'll read. In my freshman year alone I learned a great deal about Logic, Geometry, the history of Greece, many branches of Philosophy, Ancient Greek, English grammar and etymology, some Music Theory, I've improved my singing a great deal as well as learned about Biology, classical Physics including Hydraulics. This is just the freshman year and there is a saying at the college that, as a Johnnie, you'll learn more in a single week than many do in a year. While this is an exaggeration the point in that you do learn a great deal at the college and you do it in such a way that you enjoy every moment of it if you've even the slightest interest in knowing. read full review
